issue #4 of the radical feminist compilation zine hoax is underway and we need yer submissions! the topic is feminism & hirstories and our formal submission date is september 30th, 2010.

here are some examples of what we are looking for: the “click” moment when you realized you do or don’t identify as a feminist; growing up with/without feminism in yer life; stories from childhood, inspirational people (in yer families, culture, literature, etc.); introduction to women/trans/people of color’s work & theories in high school/college/etc.; relationship to past feminist movements (first wave, second wave, third wave, riot grrrl, etc.); in-depth essays about feminists of the past; history of witches, the clitoris, scientific/religious/philosophical views of female sexuality; past feminist movements that might not be well known (in africa, south america, etc); looking back to compare the state of women now to the state of women in the past; what you foresee in the years to come; what your ideals are for the years to come; HIV/AIDS and the queer movement; the importance of preservation for queer/POC/trans/disabled groups; social constructions of sexuality, race, gender, etc.; what it means for you to be a survivor of sexual assault (even a story about yer assault); the history of yer hair (POC & having “natural” or chemically straightened hair / the decision to stop shaving body hair in relation to feminist politics); having an “alternative” family (gay parents, adopted, cared for by grandparents, living in foster care, etc.)

also, we really need artwork! individual drawings, paintings, collages, or comic excerpts are all desirable! if you need more time to come up with something, or will be unavailable to mail us something before then, e-mail us and we can work something out! hoaxzine (at) gmail (dot) com!

Just put Venus Punk trilolgy in Sticky store in Melbourne. Also now a member of Sticky, the random zines I recieved yesterday via snail mail were cute-as and touching. The photocopier in their store was great too!

Hey all,
Here is a link to download this new zine titled Asexual Feminism. This first issue is devoted to how asexuality relates to feminism.

A good read for sex-positive feminists, interested in differing sexualities.

Hi Everyone!

I just graduated from William and Mary and want to start an NGO based on my college zine, Lips. The goal is to start the NGO, gather support and supplies and eventually apply for a grant to get a veggie bus going from school to school telling women and men how to start a chapter of Lips, or start their own feminist and environmentalist zines. WE NEED HELP! it takes about $800 to start an NGO in this country, and we have zip. Donations of ANY AMOUNT are so welcome, as are ideas for fundraising. Please send donations to:

LIPS
CSU#6053
PO Box 8793
Williamsburg, VA 23186

Here is our website: http://wmpeople.wm.edu/site/page/wmlips/lipshomepage

I plan to keep y'all updated on this project and hope to work with you in the future. LONG LIVE LADY ZINEZ!

Much Thanks!!!!

Not Lonely #3 is now available!

Issue 3 is about the fine line between fact and fiction, not throwing things away, being pestered by dodgy men on public transport, (somewhat comically) failing at interviews, insomnia, the reality check of life after university and alternative menstrual products. It's part-handwritten, part-typed and made in a cut-and-paste style with lots of pretty backgrounds and vintage images.

I love trades! Or the price is £1 UK / £1.50 Europe / £2 Elsewhere. Please contact me via my page on here or email not_lonely_zineATyahoo.co.uk if you'd like a copy.

I just finished my latest zine! Get A Grip is a mental health perzine on travelling Aotearoa/New Zealand as a queer feminist with depression and anxiety. I write about topics raging from consensual sex, comparing radical communities, surviving abuse, unemployment, anti-violence, social awkwardness, and cunt-like volcanoes. I write pretty raw so some of the topics may be triggering.
If you want a copy for yourself or for your distro just drop me a line and I'll sort a way of getting it you/let's exchange! I'm also planning on being organised enough to have the zine on pdf if digital is your thing.
